Florida Plumbers

In the State of Florida, becoming a plumber means you are working under a contractor's license. This means that the first thing you need to get is your high school diploma. You must have this to become a contractor in the state, though exceptions are sometimes granted for those with a GED who have taken specific plumbing classes through a community college or vocational school. You will then need to complete a contractor's training program through the state's PHCCA program.

Once you have completed the PHCCA program, you must apply for a Florida contracting license. In order to obtain this license, you will need to pass the state's Industry Licensing Board exam, which is also known as the CILB exam. If you pass this exam, you will also need to obtain a general liability insurance policy to cover your business. You cannot conduct business in Florida as a contractor without this insurance.

At this point, you will then need to take a plumbing specific exam in order to be licensed as a plumber in the state. When you pass this exam, you'll then have thirty days in which to obtain worker's compensation coverage through the state.
